The map doesn't specify the need, but these include parent representatives (who can live anywhere in the city, as long as a child is a student), but also community representaives (who live within the school's immediate area. Contact the school for details). Community reps can include grandparents who do NOT have custody of a student in the school, but they need to live within the boundaries.
In the 6th Ward, these include (according to the map):
- McDade (surprisingly!)
- Lenart (also a surpise)
- IDOC/Healy HS (8007 S. Cottage Grove)
Click on the map on CPS's web site to find your local/child's school.
The process is quick and you can even download your forms ahead of time.
Elections are April 18 and 19 (for elementary and hig schools, respectively.).
Election judges are also needed. This is a temporary paid position, and you are not tied geographically.
